Although this hotel doesn't have a lift and might not be suitable for those who must have a ground floor room, I have to say that the staff are especially good here, very obliging and promptly carried my cases upstairs on arrival. We had a lovely room with a large bathroom, lovely comfortable bed and sofa and plenty of side... More

Every year a group of friends visit the Rewind festival in Henley and stay in Reading. Previously we have stayed at the Novotel but the Mecure was more competitively priced so as a group we decided to give it a go. It didn't start too well as the post code for the concession carpark sent me right out of town... More

Overall a lovely quaint hotel in a great location in the centre of town, (although once you go through the entrance into the cobbled courtyard you would not think the town was so close.) Fantastic to sit out on the warm nights and not having to stay stuck inside hotel. EXCELLENT staff and service who go that extra mile. I... More

Lovely old exterior , it's a shame the inside has been sacrificed at the alter of modern design , no real remnants of the coaching in history remain except the strange staircases . Room is comfortable , rather too warm at night even with the window open . Other than that everything is spot on . Staff are pleasant and... More

I've stayed at the George now several times in the past as my company has rates there and it is convenient for the local town, restaurants and business. The reception staff are friendly and they do serve Corona and Estrella but the good points end there. I stayed at the George for a single night on the last three consecutive... More

I have just stayed here on a business trip to Reading. It's a lovely old quirky building in the centre of town near all the main shops. The staff were great but the bedroom was really hot and the english breakfast was rubbish. An average hotel in a very convenient location but with flaws.

We were instantly greeted by the staff and given our room straight-away. Good standard of decor and no problems at all. Great value for money and very welcoming. Infact, my girlfriend lost a personal item during our stay and the receptionist went above and beyond their role to notify us a week after our stay that it hadn't been found.... More

Stayed here on a business trip for one night and my overall experience was good. The location of the hotel is great, central to local facilities so there is a variety of things to do in the evening. The overall appearance of the hotel is very unique which gives it character. The hotel seems to have had a recent upgrade... More
